Tornike Shengelia was not going to play a big role for the Nets this season — he played in just 19 games last season and didn’t exactly impress at Summer League in Orlando where he averaged 7.6 points a game on 35 percent shooting.

But any he hope he had of contributing much likely just went out the window.

The Nets announced he will have surgery to repair the meniscus in his left knee. This was an injury suffered while working out with the Georgian national team.

The timeline for Shengelia’s recovery will be announced after the surgery. Suffice to say he’s not going to be ready to go opening night and could potentially miss the entire season.
